Licensed Psychologist Job Description
Have you always wanted to work in a private practice setting, but were overwhelmed by the idea of starting your own business or working alone? Do you want to work with a group of individuals focused on client-care and social justice in the local community?
Colorado Therapy & Assessment Center is looking for a licensed or soon-to-be-licensed psychologist who will bring a unique perspective to our staff and shares our values of compassion, belonging, humility, and excellence. We are always looking to expand our ability to help the diverse range of individuals, including those in underserved and marginalized communities, and we value new perspectives and experience within our staff. We strongly encourage applications from candidates with diverse or marginalized identities. Join our values-driven, supportive team!
About the Position
Our Licensed Psychologist positions provide the opportunity to work in a private practice setting, engage in long-term psychotherapeutic work, and to create a professional home. After many years of learning, growing, training, and moving, Licensed Psychologists are able to settle in with a welcoming, close team of coworkers in an established and highly respected practice.
Licensed Psychologists will provide therapy services for clients with eating disorders and general mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, and relational concerns. Though you will work with general mental health concerns, willingness to work with eating disorders is required. Licensed Psychologists will also perform psychological assessments.
Licensed Psychologists engage in supervision only during onboarding and once quarterly with the Director. Licensed Psychologists also attend weekly staff meetings for case consults, and are offered additional training opportunities such as eating disorder didactic seminar, assessment didactic seminar, and social justice and professional development trainings. Supervision for eating disorder cases counts toward application for Certified Eating Disorders Specialist if candidate desires. Licensed Psychologists also supervise Postdoctoral Residents and/or doctoral student externs.
We also have a group of psychologists-in-training (doctoral extern trainees) from local universities and providing training and supervision in therapy and assessment as well as an APPIC-listed Predoctoral Psychology Internship; we are pursuing full APA-accreditation for our internship program. Postdoctoral Residents and Licensed Psychologists provide supervision to trainees.
When you start this position, you will begin part-time as credentialing with insurance is completed, working up to full-time. Full caseload is anticipated within 3 months of start date. Most staff reach full caseload within 6 weeks. If licensed already, insurance credentialing can be completed while you work at your current job, enabling you to start at CTAC already on insurance panels and ready to accept those referrals. We are fortunate to have a high volume of new patient referrals and are able to quickly fill your caseload pending insurance credentialing. Due to our high referral volume, once you reach a full caseload, you will be able to stay full. Please note, pay is hourly based on client contact hours- this is not a salaried position.
Our streamlined system and administrative support ensure that you can show up, meet with clients, write your notes, and go home to take good care of yourself and enjoy your loved ones.
Our Ideal Candidate
Our ideal candidate at CTAC is someone who values a blend of collaborative and independent work. They value social justice in access to care and are truly passionate about meeting clients where they are at. Our ideal candidate will bring fresh perspectives and new knowledge to our staff and our clinic to help us continue to grow and develop.
